A 1980s fighter jet has been put up for sale in Florida for $8.5million.

The sought-after plane is being sold in Palm Beach and could be purchased alongside two other F-16 vipers, a F-16AM and BM Block 20 Mid-Life-Update.

It's a fully functioning combat aircraft and hasn't been demilitarized. 

Jet Lease, who are selling the warbird, are a private aircraft leasing and purchasing company.

They acquired the used aircraft from Jordan, who bought up dozens of secondhand F-16s from the Netherlands and Belgium between 2008 and 2017, according to The Drive.

While the jet was built in 1980, it's has modern upgrades, including being integrated with GPS-controlled weapons, and night-vision compatible helmets. It also has Link16 data-link and Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS).
